Pizza Spice

Pizza Spice




Ingredients:

1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Pepper
1 Teaspoon ground coriander
3 Teaspoons dried rosemary
1 Teaspoon thyme
2 Teaspoons basil leaves
1 Teaspoon oregano leaves
1 Teaspoon parsley leaves
1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
1/4 Teaspoon paprika (optional, this makes it a bit more spicy)

Instructions:

Measure all the ingredients into a small bowl, mix to combine. Store in an air tight container and shake over top of a pizza or bread sticks for an extra kick.

Or in butter with garlic, or on toast with butter, or in bread crumbs to crumb coat chicken, fish or pork, the ways to use this one are truly endless. Plus while I can't speak for everyone this spice blend has been a hit with everyone I've tried it on.

Enjoy!

Notes:

I had a summer job for two years at a pizza restaurant in my hometown. They never should have left me alone with the recipe books and all the ingredients, because I pretty much took all their secrets and ran with them! But I have only used them for good and in my own home, and it's been a few years and the recipes I had taken have evolved over the years so I don't feel so bad sharing them now.

This Pizza spice can be used to just add a little extra kick to a pretty plain pizza or I have some other ways that I use it, but those are recipes for another day. It is also good on home made garlic bread, garlic fingers, bread sticks, etc.  One of my favorite ways to use it is when I was lazy and didn't make my own pizza sauce and the store bough stuff tastes too bland, just sprinkle some of this over the sauce, add the rest of the toppings and BAM things are really kicked up a notch.
